Marni!!

Nice job with the duck slayer! I'm sure he will enjoy the picture.

Thanks for doing that

Well, Here's the first whack at posting pics. I love taking pictures and there is never enough time to do all the things we want, but I get a chance from time to time. The night scene is a time-lapsed picture at about mindnight the last time we went camping "up north". The earth's rotation gives the stars their arcing path, while the North Star is clearly still in the upper right. The second pic is of an Indian head I carved the last time I went to my woodworking school.

Kurt, that Indian is awesome. I'm a rookie carver, I'll have to find my tileman I carved and see if I can post a picher.

Kurt-- Very nice pics! Let me ask you-- that night sky pic-- how long was the aperture open for that? I've got a Canon AE-1 that I've tried to do the same thing with a 2 second openning, and it wasn't even close.

BTW-- Thank you very much for your comments a couple of weeks ago.

I have to give credit to my carving instructor "Jeff Phares" for teaching the daylights otta me. Before last October, I didn't know my arse from one of those carving pointed sharp thingies. That's my first real carving. Sure we studied and carved "study sticks" for a few days beforehand, but the the instructor was that good. The guy is a true cowboy, twang talkin' and all. He could put a picture in your head and show you how to break it down into a bunch of managable steps. Very fun time, very enjoyable and rewarding. Like so many other things you learn, you have new doors opening up all around you and you get the priveledge to look at the world a little deeper.

Edited to get Bill's question:
Bill, it was something like a 12-14 minute exposure 200 speed film (with a pretty small aperature). I wandered around while the shot was being taken so I don't remember exactly. The shutter is open as long as the button is depressed and I rigged up a piece of tape to hold it in - but the camera's internal penlight batteries were running low and would cause the shutter to close without me knowing. I suppose if you measure the degrees of arcing, you could take 360 degrees (full earth rotation) and devide it by whatever the arcs measure and you'd know what fraction of a day it was. I would try a 15 minute exposure and close the aperature almost all the way down (maybe 2 stops shy of the smallest opening you have) and see what that does. It would have to be awfully dark to take this shot. The sky has to be nearly black, or the picture will end up so light, it's reduculous.
And Bill...you're very welcome.

I've never taken any classes (and it shows), just grabed a piece of wood and a knife. I need to get back to it, I really enjoyed it.

Bill,

Your canon will do it. I've had an AE-1 program for 24 years. I did that same thing when I was a kid. Don't remember how I did it of course, but I do recall having done it.....or at least I think I recall having done it.
